Diversity at H-BRS
Inclusion at H-BRS: Studying or working with a disability or chronic illness
Monday - Friday: after prior inquiry
Inclusion is an important element of diversity at H-BRS: people with disabilities and chronic illnesses are part of the diverse landscape of our university. It is an important objective of H-BRS to pave way for successful study opportunities of all our students - no matter what personal and physical conditions students bring along. Disabilities and chronic illnesses can be visible or invisible - inclusion means that we are not only aware of diversity, but also see its potential and foster it through appropriate measures and projects.
The H-BRS is integrating the topic of inclusion more strongly into the various university levels with the help of the "Inklusive Hochschule NRW" funding programme and is developing additional measures.
In addition, the Respekt! initiative offers various activities on inclusion and inclusive action via the format Respekt! Inklusiv.
If you have any questions, please contact the Coordinator for Inclusive University Katrin Maag.
